Samurai Wave

This is called Samurai Wave. I think it's easy to feel the sweep of the sword, although it's not really bloody; that's what I came up with, or more correctly...This is what comes out of me!

Western Omelette       3/12
This one is called Western Omelette... it's one of those where I just hit the paper running without any thought. I guess I was hungry, as I named it after I was finished! Thanks for looking! This is what comes out of me.

Washington Art Walk

I have four pieces up at Kathy's Kove in Washington, NJ; part of the Washington Art Walk. My pieces will be up until June 13th. Kathy's is a great place; antiques of all types, a tea room, and clock repair specialist. It's a really unique establishment; I think you'd have fun checking it out anytime, and of course, if it happens to be the month when my work is up, all the better! The Art Walk itself is this Thursday, May 17th from 5-8pm; you can get the map and location of the 10+ establishments that are hosting artists' works at Kathy's, or anywhere on the walk. Here is one of my more recent pieces, thanks for taking a look! This is what comes out of me!

Heat Wave

I think we were going through one when I painted this, but not sure, plus the weather in the last season hasn't been exactly seasonable or predictable. Neither is my art! And yes, this one has a tinted undercoat, it's not your monitor! This is what comes out of me.

Ha! Painted this one a couple of months ago. Two days ago when out to dinner, sitting outside, someone nearby was squonking on one of these things! Funny how everything in the world connects! This is what comes out of me!

Everyone has a signature. This piece is called signature. Not sure whose it reminds me of, but it does. There's a handwritten quality to this one. I suppose I have a couple of "signature" styles in my artwork; some people's laughs are their signatures, or their smiles for that matter. So at this point I realize that I am talking about two distinct definitions for the word signature. A cursive name, casually written; and, a style one calls their own. I don't sign my work until it's being framed and I'm intentional about where the signature goes and what color it is. It's all about balance and style, whichever signature you refer to! This is what comes out of me.

Out of Touch!

Sometimes it's difficult for me to get into a regular rhythm. I've always walked my own walk and set my own schedule. Sometimes it feels as if that wasn't the smartest thing to do. It feels like it may have been easier to set myself up where I do the same thing every day (or at least 5 days a week) for some regularity and structure in my life. That's not the case, and, I suppose it could be at any time, but right now it's not. So where does that leave me? Sometimes forgetting to do things I LOVE to do! I look at how much time I have, what I have to do, and not necessarily what makes me happy all the time. So I haven't posted in some time. I actually haven't painted in three days, and the last few pieces I did complete took me longer than usual. It feels as if my output is down. I'm not going to start painting 3 pieces a day to catch up, but it feels odd to have "forgotten" something as important as painting in my life. All it takes, I guess with any habit, is to get out of practice! Here's a piece for you to check out. Thanks for reading, looking and seeing. This is what comes out of me!
